Arrested was Arnel Mariano y Macaso, single, of Guisao.

Mariano stabbed Wilbert Tarroza y Guevarra, 43.

Police said that Tarroza was standing near the store of Antonio Truita in Boalan around 7:30 p.m. when Mariano and Edwin Buagas appeared. Mariano embraced Tarroza and stabbed him twice in the stomach.

Although wounded, Tarroza was able to run towards the  store of Truita where he asked for help.

Mariano and his companion escaped after the incident.

A police trainee identified as PO1 Michael Mamon and a companion riding tandem on a motorcycle passed by and saw Mariano acting suspiciously.

Mamon rushed to the RMG checkpoint and requested for assistance that resulted in the arrest of Mariano. — Dan Toribio Jr.
